On May 15, 2014, thanks to you, "En-eating" was able to celebrate its 2nd anniversary! For two years, greedy people who just want to eat delicious food have written about 4,700 articles on gourmet food. Looking back on those two years, I would like to immerse myself in my memories.
■ Japanese people like queues !? Waiting time ranking
Why do Japanese people like the procession so much? I'm wondering if they line up often, but I'm just curious about the queue shops. Especially for gluttons. So far, the En-eating editorial department has rushed into a number of queue shops. From those, pick up the one with the long waiting time. Let's look back in the ranking format.
1st place: French toast specialty store "Ivorish Shibuya store" (70 minutes)
The first place was the French toast specialty store "Ivorish Shibuya" which opened in Shibuya, Tokyo in April 2014. The waiting time is 70 minutes . This waiting time even though I missed lunch time. But let's say it's good because we ate delicious French toast.
2nd place: Garrett Popcorn Shops Harajuku (60 minutes)
The second place is "Garrett Popcorn Shops Harajuku" where there are still long lines. As of April 2013, there was a long line waiting for 60 minutes. It's not an eat-in, so it spins fast, but the day will come when people will line up like a theme park to buy popcorn. The "Tokyo Station Store" opened in April 2014, and when I visited in early May, I had to wait two and a half hours before the store opened. Some people are older than the Harajuku store and have suitcases. If you have time, you may be able to buy it sooner if you give up Tokyo Station and go to Harajuku.
3rd place: World's first specialty store "KitKat Chocolatery" (50 minutes)
The world's first KitKat specialty store "KitKat Chocolatory" (Ikebukuro, Tokyo), which opened in January 2014, ranked third. A few days after the opening, when I visited at 10 o'clock, it was already waiting for 50 minutes. Your aim is a limited number of products. At this time, it seems that many people asked for the "Examination Student Support Package". By the way, it seems that there will be no lines in the afternoon. From May 8th, a new summer product " Premium Soft Cream with Grilled KitKat " will be on sale, so check it out.
4th place: Tokyo Solamachi "Moomin House Cafe" (40 minutes)
"Moomin House Cafe" where you can experience the world of Moomin, a popular Finnish character. The Tokyo Sky Tree Town Solamachi store was waiting in line for 40 minutes , even though it had been nine months since it opened. At such a store, the other day, there was a lot of talk about "God's response to botchi customers" by sharing stuffed animals. The stuffed animal doesn't speak, but it will heal you if you are in front of it. From the eating editorial department who enjoyed a meal with Moominmamma.
5th place: Kakigori specialty store "Himitsudo" (20 minutes)
The shaved ice specialty store "Himitsudo" in Yanaka, Tokyo is ranked 5th. It's a popular shop where you can line up even in the middle of winter, but when I visited in March, the waiting time was 20 minutes. The shop is popular for its handmade feel of shaving natural ice from Nikko with a manual ice shaving machine. It seems that you may have to wait up to 5 hours in the summer, so please head to Yanaka with your heart.
Bonus: Hawaiian restaurant "Eggs'n Things Harajuku"
The popular store "Eggs'n Things" is said to be the igniter of the pancake boom. The reason for this is that if you go before the store opens, you can enter the store with almost no waiting time. When the En-eating editorial department visited, I arrived 15 minutes before the store opened and was able to enter the store at the same time as the store opened. It seems that the night is relatively free. But during the day, I still see long lines, so if you can only go during the day, you may need to be prepared.
By the way, when I visited the "Kobe Harborland Store " (Kobe City, Hyogo Prefecture) that opened the other day during Golden Week, I was waiting for 90 minutes at 16:00 in the evening. The "Kyoto Shijo store" (Shimogyo-ku, Kyoto), which just opened in May, seems to have a line at once. The popularity of pancakes seems to be alive and well.
How was your waiting time ranking? I'm sure I ate in line for more time! I put it in earlier! Some people will say. The condition of the procession is unknown until you actually go there. The En-eating editorial department is always looking for queue information. "I'm curious about that line shop, but I don't have the courage to enter." "There is a long line, but what kind of shop is it?" The eating editorial department will charge!
We look forward to your continued support!
